Don’t Go Chasing Waterfalls

Don't Go Chasing Waterfalls Hey peeps! Linden Labs has made it so the SL Home and Garden Expo has a few more days! If you haven’t checked it out yet, you’re missing out on a great way to contribute to Relay For Life. As I stated in my previous post, there are creators with items up for grabs that contribute either 100% sale donations or 50% sale donations to RFL. In addition there is an auction and many creators have decorated homes to compete for the most donations to RFL. One of the homes I visited is on the water and named the Beach Cabin. House No. 11 is a cozy little home with a small living area, spacious foyer and bedroom upstairs, and an outdoor kitchen and dining area perfect for enjoying a view of the water. The dock also offers easy access to moor a boat. Come take a look at the wonderful work Alec Rogue has done on his build and donate some linden if you can to his donation kiosk. Every linden donated is a vote for their home and 100% go to RFL!
Don't Go Chasing Waterfalls

Happy exploring. ♥

Some Girls Wear Jeans So Tight ’cause it Feels So Right, Yeah

Some Girls Wear Jeans So Tight 'cause it Feels So Right, Yeah

February, the month of love and romance, is almost over. While most think of it as the time for couples, it’s also a good time to show ourselves a bit of self-love. A reminder if you will, that YOU are amazing and deserving of love just the way you are. Whether you fit into one of society’s supposed “perfect” boxes or dance to the beat of your own drum, we’re all a work in progress just trying to win our battles each day. So in honor of love and being true to ourselves, treat yourself this month. Buy yourself your favorite treat, watch your favorite show or movie, and just take a moment each day to look in the mirror and tell yourself “I’m awesome the way I am.”

With the onset of spring fast approaching, I often find myself wanting to redecorate to give my surroundings a fresh look. Sprucing up my home is therapeutic for me and I’ve found some lovely things recently. =EC Designs= has created some fun new furniture sets for your homes inworld which are currently being exclusively sold at the SL Home and Garden Expo. The Home and Garden Expo is a huge event that supports Relay For Life, a cause near and dear to many of us. One of their new adorable sets that is up for 50/50 Donations is the Garden Patio Set. Included in this set are a loveseat, chair, and table that are spring green and golden yellow. Both the chair and the loveseat have several female and male single sits which can be accessed in any sitting spot. Couples can cozy up together on the Loveseat to enjoy a nice afternoon in the sun.

Some Girls Wear Jeans So Tight 'cause it Feels So Right, Yeah

If you’re looking for living room pieces, they have you covered there too with their Lawson Living Room set that has two different loveseats, an armchair, coffee tables, and a lamp which is one of their 100% donation sets. Their Gemini Lounger is up for 100% RFL donations as well. If you’re up for hunting, their Laced Up Chair is their hunt prize and will add a fun quirky vibe to any room in your house. Lastly, they have an item up for auction for the Expo. The Sheltered Lounge provides a cozy shady spot to relax or cuddle up with your loved one, which is being offered up in an event exclusive color. Be sure to check it out and help show some love to the cause!

When Streams Are Ripe and Swelled with Rain

When Streams Are Ripe and Swelled with Rain Hello again! I know it’s been a little longer than I expected since my last post but real life decided to bless me with a spring cold. I am doing better now and have some cute finds from the Cart Sale for you to see. A quick note; the Cart Sale now allows merchants to sell six items for 10 lindens, six items for 25 lindens, and one item for 50 lindens. Now on to the goodies! When Streams Are Ripe and Swelled with Rain

One of the first goodies I’ve found at the Cart Sale was a very cute dress from Mishmash Fusion. The Someday Minidress comes in a selection of six colors, each for 25 lindens. Sizes included fit Slink Physique and Hourglass, Belleza Isis, Freya, and Venus, and Maitreya Lara mesh bodies. This cute dress has a lovely lace skirt overlay and small suspenders straps that add just a touch of quirk. If you look closely, I am wearing a tattoo with ravens by Innerjoy Love Tattoo. There are many beautiful and colorful tattoos for sale but I love ravens of the Worthy Life tattoo in black ink which comes in Maitreya and omega appliers and includes standard tattoo layers.

If you’re looking to add some spring joy to your home and garden, you will find a nice selection of flowers and other decorations at the Cart Sale. In front of the windows I’ve placed some climbing roses from the Home Store. With the scent of roses in the air, the promise of new life creates a warm atmosphere. A small jug from Dark Knight Décor makes a nice vase for freshly cut flowers as a centerpiece on my new table. Dark Knight Décor also made my breakfast tray which has yummy coffee and bagels fresh from the kitchen. If coffee is not your beverage of choice, you might try =EC Designs= lovely little Spring Tea Set with their acorn teapot and tea cups. You can find the table at the SL Home & Garden Expo along with a decorative shelf that is also up for sale from Dictatorshop. On the floor I’ve spread some candles and flowers I found from LpOca. Along with these flowers, LpOca has many other flower arrangements including a window planter and some pitchers used as vases. Lastly, I picked up a cute chair from Kitty Creations that has a lovely velvet softness to it. You can change the texture between three colors and the chair fits nicely in small corners for both single sitters or a couple of avatars.

That is all I have for today, be sure to look around the Cart Sale and pick up the goodies before it’s too late!

Ooh, the Beauty is There But a Beast is in the Heart

Ooh, the Beauty is There But a Beast is in the Heart

Although Halloween is over, I’m still feeling a little witchy. I decided to play with a bit of magic and organize some of my potion jars in the attic. I was aiming for something dark but…I think I used a little too many flower petals so if you see some luminescent butterflies, don’t be alarmed. You may start dancing and singing random songs, but there should be no lasting effects. Curious about the items in my hideaway? Only one more day of Secondlife Syndicate’s Trick or Treat event. More info on the event here. Let’s dive in!

If you are looking for a nice storage option, [noctis] has a beautiful shelf that has room for all the potion jars you collect. This shelf is the grand prize if you get the VIP Hud and collect all the pieces from [noctis].  Only like the jars? They make cute year round accent pieces for any corner of the house.

Nearby, you will find I have my grimoire set out. The Half Moon Market has created pieces that every witch needs, the grimoire being the most important in my opinion. It’s small yet detailed in its design. Other items include pumpkins, an athame, and potion bottles.

Ooh, the Beauty is There But a Beast is in the Heart The last items from Trick or Treat I am sharing in this post are things I’m wearing. On my face are little tear drop tattoos. Unicult has several tattoos that come in Catwa and Omega appliers with multiple color options per tattoo. Collect them all and you’ll have something that goes with any outfit. Ooh, the Beauty is There But a Beast is in the Heart

Lastly, Dark Passions has created super fun Halloween themed nail appliers for this event. These nails come in appliers for Slink, Maitreya, and Omega appliers. There are nine different sets to collect, and the grand prize if you have the VIP Hud. I personally would wear these year round and they make a great addition to any goth or edgy look.

I have one more post coming, but don’t wait any longer. Go knock on some doors before the event ends this weekend!

Everybody’s Comin’, Leave Your Body at the Door

Everybody's Comin', Leave Your Body at the Door

Hello monsters and ghouls! There is a new event called Trick or Treat that started October 21st and I am excited to share it with you all! If you like gachas and Halloween, this is an event for you; play for free and play all the gachas like normal or you can buy the VIP Hud which will give you a grand prize once you’ve played each gacha until you collect all prizes. No gacha item is repeated so there is no worries about duplicate items. Find more info on how it all works and landmarks here. Now on to some previews!

I’m still trying to figure out my costume for Halloween so I picked up a few things to mix and match with. At The Little Bat, the Grand Prize is a set of Monochrome Leggings that have several different patterns for the top section to pick from. This set comes in an omega applier. Commons include other leggings variations and mesh nails fitted for Maitreya and Slink hands.

My top is from Squishy Fluff and is one of several of the Treat tops with words on it. It comes fitted for Maitreya, Slink Physique and Hourglass, Kemono, and Ruth2 mesh bodies. Collect all ten tops and get comfy for the house or out and about. Squishy Fluff also has trick prizes that include raisin dresses and Pumpkin Spice Lax.

To complete my look, I picked up a necklace from Astara. They have both good and bad witch crystal necklaces so play until you get one you prefer. Cubic Cherry made cute horns, eyes, and a mask for the grand prize. The horns seemed to match my look for this evening the most and nestle perfectly in my hair. Lastly, I couldn’t forget my Frankenbucket with candy and my gummy worm to keep me energized for partying all night long.

Look out for more previews soon and have fun Trick or Treating!

Boys Like a Little More Booty to Hold at Night

Boys Like a Little More Booty to Hold at Night

Summer is slowly winding down to its end. Our lazy warm days shorten bit by bit but still we dance and play as if it will never end. Couples wander, teasing and making mischief amongst the yellowing grasses. Kisses stolen by the campfire on a cool summer’s evening. Hazy days we’ve had. Soon over and dreamt of with whimsy during the cold winter days.

In hopes of holding onto summer’s fun a bit longer, the Cart Sale opened two days ago with many merchants offering lovely 10 linden summer goodies. I will be sharing some of what you can find in my next few posts.

My first look is a cute little dress from Mishmash Fusion that you can find in three colors. The Starseed Mini is a wonderfully flirty dress. Sizes included for each dress fit 3 Belleza, 2 Slink, Maitreya, and eBody mesh bodies. Grab this gem and tease your favorite eye candy as you bend over to pet some cute critters or fix a shoe. My friend followed me around and had picked up the Sleeveless Shirt from Dark Water Designs at the Cart Sale as well. Several colors are up for grabs, each one coming with models for Adam, Altamura, Signature, Slink, and ExMachina male mesh bodies.

Boys Like a Little More Booty to Hold at Night Another cute outfit I found is from Sweet Willows. My second look has somewhat of a nautical flavor with its dark blue top and white and blue striped skirt. This outfit is only available for Maitreya mesh bodies but there are four colors to pick from and the fit is nice. It’s casual enough not to feel overdressed going out, but cute enough that you won’t feel plain on a day date. Anyone up for some sailing? For a bit of whimsy, I added the Bottled Fairy Earrings from the Dark Fae which are also at the Cart Sale in five different colors. Each color of fairy is safely contained in a small glass bottle entwined with a bit of wire to be suspended from your ear. Boys Like a Little More Booty to Hold at Night

For the guys, you can find the Kimono Shirt from Dark Water Designs in four color options. This top has sizes for the male mesh bodies Adam, Jake, Signature, and Slink. While these are not traditional kimonos, they are comfy and casual enough for any guy just hanging out.

Looking for a nice setup in your yard to hangout while it’s still warm? =EC Designs= has you set! Check out their new Campfire Logs, Campfire, and the matching Campfire Stumps in the Campfire Set. The campfire logs come with four different versions of the pillows and cute sits for females, males, and couples. While the stumps are not pictured here, the post with lantern comes in the pack with tree stumps that come in two sizes. The tree stumps have animations perfect for singles, female or male, who just want to chill by the fire on their own.

That is all I have to show you for now. Plenty of other goodies await you in the Cart Sale at the Wash so make your way now before time runs out! All links are below.

I Feel Your Whisper Across the Sea

Pergola Time_001

“Hey, wake up sleepyhead.” She nudges the snoring figure stretched out across a well padded lounge chair. A mumble from the dark haired man responds with a slight adjustment of his head resting on his arms as she continues to nudge his shoulders. Her hands begin softly rubbing over his shoulders, her quiet humming accompanied by distant bird calls.

After a few moments, his eyes flicker open as he stirs, waking up but pretending to slumber still as he listens to her hum a soft song. It was a rare treat to catch her humming, and he cherished every second. Suddenly, a finger jabbed into his back, making him jump up and grunt in surprise. “Ugggh… why you gotta wake me up like that, babe?” Shifting his body around, he sat up on the lounger, swiftly wrapped his arms around her and pulled her against his chest, making her squeal and laugh as he playfully jabbed her back with his finger.

Pergola Time_002

“You were already awake! I could tell when you stopped snoring.” She grinned up at him. As his arms move to hold her close, she reaches up to pull his head down for a soft kiss. His arms tighten around her for a moment, a smile on his lips as she pulls away, hand still holding his head.

Tucking a loose strand of hair behind her ear, he chuckles, “Nothing gets past you, does it?”


The Cart Sale is still going strong, with less than a week left to grab the awesome deals with most items at 10L. I shared a few things in my previous post and I’m back to share a couple more things you can find there right now.

Battle fairy currently has a wonderful selection of summery dresses and sandal heels also set for sale at the Cart Sale. I’m wearing it on my Maitreya Lara mesh body with no clipping that I could see. For me it’s a perfect casual beachy look or a little dressed up for a date night. It comes in mesh models fitted for Maitreya Lara, Slink Physique and Hourglass, and Belleza Isis, Freya, and Venus. Grab all five dresses before it’s too late.

Pergola Time_006

My nails were done by Nail It Good! with their “it’s May” polish. This polish set comes in six fun patterns on one Hud which includes appliers for Slink, Omega, Maitreya, and Belleza nails for both hands and feet. Add some sparkle to your look before heading out this summer with this set.

Pergola Time_005

The finishing touch for my beachy look today was a necklace made by Captivating! There are six cute beaded necklaces for sale that will have you dreaming of the tropics and getting sand in your toes. Any of these necklaces would look nice with a strapless dress or swimwear.

From =EC Designs=, I have a cute pergola setup that includes a lounger that is animated for singles and couples. Sit with your friend and hang out, or cuddle up with your partner to relax in the sun. There are even massages if you feel like pampering your partner a bit. The set is easy to just set out and poses are adjustable. Whether you are vacationing at your beach house or need a relaxing cuddle spot in your yard, this set is too cute to pass up.

That is all for now but I will have one more post up before the event ends. Don’t delay though, go get these amazing deals before the event is over!
